Are you trying to learn another language? It can be hard to find good videos that are available for free to help, particularly if you’re trying to learn English, as businesses know there is a huge opportunity with the market of many millions of people wanting to learn the language. Large numbers of those learning English, however, don’t have money to pay for access to video libraries.

If you and/or your students are interested in getting involved in creating sets of videos to help with this effort, use the contact link on the page to let them know.
